DNF at 75%It was just too repetitive and monotonous I had high hopes for this tale of broken down survivors of the US Civil War grasping at a chance to find a new Shangri La in California And so they undertake the arduous trek westward in covered wagons through the Oregon trail fighting both internal and outside threats river crossings dust storms cholera Native warriors unscrupulous predators amongst their midst and the depression that soon turns to madness paranoia and hysteria that overtake even the most level headed members of their party And of course there is the slow burn between Union Vet Rourke and plucky Abby Market the woman who can handle reins or rifles like she was born to itSounds exciting uh It wasn'tI lost track of the number of river crossings Of all the dust and grime Of all the hunting skinning and cooking Of all the jugs of whiskey being drunk how did they have enough room in those wagons for what seemed like a small country's entire annual production of whiskeyI lost count of all the stare contests between H and h Of all the times H ogled h's womanly curves even hidden under layers of oversized male clothing that reeked of horse and sweat Of all the stolen moments where he would kiss and feel her up only to be interrupted at the crucial moment Of all the destructive self righteous Mary Suesaintly martyr actions of the h that constantly put her life and those of the entire wagon party in dangerI finally drew the line three uarters in when it seemed that the reader was being set up for yet another attempted sexual assault on the h that H would inevitably rescue her from A GainI am a sucker for historical western romances but this did not work for me at all

A man who roused the unspoken yearnings of her passionate soulRourke was a battle scarred Union veteran hired to guard the wagon train A loner by choice and by fate his heart was moved by Abby's plight though the young beauty proudly refused his aid Yet with the wagons rolling on through dusty plains and treacherous deserts a tenderness bloomed between them as he taught her. Gah This was 417 pages of absolute mush I'll be back right after I update the challenge that I read this forOK I've managed to vent a little of my ire at this book in the challenge so I might be able to be a little balanced in my reviewnope on second thought probably notThis is the most overdone trials and tribulations of Pauline book that I have ever read As soon as the MCs managed to make it though one crisis here comes another to overwhelm them It's bad enough that Abby and Carrie's father is a drunken brute treating them both like useless drains on him while he does nothing than drink and berate them No let's add a cruel drinking buddy of his who's a rapist at heart And why don't we add a little bit of mob mentality to the rest of the wagon train How about the rapist's wife dying in childbirth Sure Let's have a little bit of Cholera to spice things up And a woman who's going around the bend due to grief at losing the only thing she loves her piano which was sacrificed to get through the mudflats of the river they were crossing since it was too heavy and let's make her neglect her little boy and give her a drunk for a husband too just for fun Had enough But wait there's I don't think I can even remember all the awful things that happened or in what order they came In fact I'll be doing a little light reading to get most of this out of my mind I'm thinking maybe Doctor Zivago or Anna KareninaBottom line read at your own peril since this might kill you just as much as the wagon train to California killed most of the characters in the storyOh yeah I completely forgot to mention be wary of the extremely uick POV changes Good luck keeping track of who's head you're inside when it changes from paragraph to paragraph at times

Horrible High body count At first pioneers meeting death and destruction on the trail didn't bother me; hardships were real and defeating for many However the death toll by the end of the book was a little disturbing You want to read great westerns Read Jo Goodman
